PODCASTS

We had a conversation with the wonderful editorial team over at our sister site Audio Addict about issue 28!

Radio Addict were lucky enough to sit down with Southampton based DJ and drum and bass producer Infrared before his up and coming appearance in the main room at Switch Southampton as he opens for Dimension and Turno on the decks. Listen here for an interview and mini mix by the man himself.

It's the Take The Stage final this friday and today we are here to promote the show in all its glory. We sat down with the co hosts of the show as well as the producer engaging in a chat to try and give out as much information as possible surrounding the talent show before it airs the final tomorrow

Fangirls are so important to the music industry... BUT they are still demonised in the media. Fangirls are stereotyped and laughed at and are seen as nothing more than hysterical, teenage girls who are obsessed with the image of their favourite band and not the music they create. But that doesn’t stop the music industry from milking them for cash. This podcast is a discussion on why fangirls are seen as hysterical maniacs and why is there a negative connotation attached to being a fangirl and a celebration of some of our fondest experiences with fangirl culture.

It’s hard to ignore that the Alternative/Emo/DIY/punk/Pop Punk scene has finally started to call out abusers. But, there are a lot more problems that need addressing. This is a rant about how all this shit needs to change. Solidarity with victims, always and forever.

Gaga For Gaga

With her debut album “The Fame” turning 10 this year, we want to have a discussion about the importance of this album, it’s stand out moments, songs, videos etc and about how her portrayal of sex and art through her bold fashion statements, performances and music; as well as her
vocal support of lgbtqia+ rights have made her into the icon she is today.

In Conversation With: DEFENCES

Radio Addict were lucky enough to sit down with Cherry and Calum from DEFENCES fresh off the stage after their knock out performance at the o2 Academy Islington.

In Conversation With: Beans on Toast

To celebrate Independent Venue Week, singer/songwriter Beans on Toast performed a special show at the iconic Southampton venue: The Joiners.

The grassroots/independent music venue scene is vital for the music industry and venues up and down the country are struggling now, more than ever. We need to rally together and support these venues as without them, we will be losing the heart and soul of live music.

We were extremely lucky to have got the opportunity to speak to Beans on Toast before his performance in support of Indepedent Venue Week and hope you enjoy listening and keep going to and supporting your local venues.
